Chiropractic and Addiction
The University of Miami School of Medicine and the Florida Chiropractic Society is currently conducting the first large-scale human population study to prove the effectiveness of the chiropractic adjustment in dealing with chemical addiction. Preliminary results from the triple-blind study shows that a person receiving chiropractic care is ten times more likely to complete a drug program. This equates to about a 97 percent retention rate which is very remarkable if it is retained to the end of the study.
Dr. Holder, the lead researcher in the program stated that, "By removing subluxations that interfere with the normal functioning of the nervous system, a person in a drug treatment center is more likely to complete his or her term of stay because the person now can meet the needs of all the other modalities that are offered as treatment."
People who have undergone chiropractic care have less drug detox or withdrawal symptoms. Their physical complaints are almost eliminated. Chiropractic care allows them to concentrate on dealing with their addiction rather than being distracted by other problems.
